    When i combine multiple meshes into a single mesh in Blender and export the fbx it is generating a massive amount of Background textures and all in kspixel shader. Finished map is very bright .

    How would i export the fbx model with just one background texture, that can be edited in KS editor as a single entity covering multiple meshes, getting more and more to grips with Blender

    I think it's also a good habit of, try to combine the same type of thing together to reduce object amount if you are working on game maps. Also don't make it too complex cause it will easily trash your work if you have errors.

    I don't use blender but i think the idea is similar. Either you combine all the mesh, as well as also UVs, then it should be using one texture only. Or- you simply don't add texture at blender but in KS editor, but you have to make sure the UV is joined or only 1 UV map.

    Thanks for your reply

    There is only one texture but 12ooo duplicate materials i need to get rid of or rename. I found a script for Blender that would rename the duplicate materials but nothing happened

    The total mesh count is down from 12000plus to just over 1000, if i can get rid of the duplicate materials then the KS editor would let me change the shader for Background and that would cover all the meshes. Right now i have Background......Background.9856.......Background.6563.......etc.........etc

    Thanks for any advice

    Again i think i have cracked it. The Blender script worked and it renamed all the excess duplicate Background materials to their original name. I got it to export the fbx back to the original folder, got it into KS editor, changed the shader to Multilayer and it turned out swimmingly.

    Off track has integrity, the render stats are good, file size is good, need to workout how to UV map the models to reduce the texture count

    The scene has just under 1000 meshes, down from a staggering 16000 at one point (track is 80km long). I aim to get that down even further now i know how to reduce the mesh count successfully

    Thanks for all the input

    And what happens if you define them ? Can you override them ?

    Not sure. I seem to remember they might give some weird behaviour but I might be wrong.

    And what would be the point anyway ? If you want surfaces with diferent parameters, why not just use a new name ? :)

    Anyway, if you want to have fun, give it a go and let us know what happens.

    Is there a list of limitations for AC game engine? Thank you!
